I was running an errand for Grand today. I wound up at a guys house who had some very nice Bolens tractors. I hope that everyone will pardon me for not remembering all the model #'s. However I did think enough to take some pics of this wonderful piece, and with the owners permission, share it with all of you! I think that the pics could've come out better, but here they are.

I believe that he said the model was 1475 or 1476? He also said that the forklift attachment was built for this particular tractor. Hope you enjoy the pics!

Thanks for sharing the pictures!

It appears to be a 1476 or 1477 most likely a 1476


Here's a brochure pic of the fork lift:

Looks like he's got some good stuff there judging by what I can see in the back ground LOL

I need to thank you for two things Steve. First for posting the pictures and secondly for going to Rick's to pick up the sign. I had always met him along I-80 close to his camp whenever I bought anything before. It was about a 3 hour drive but still closer than going to his house. Knowing he had the Bolens sitting around I will one day have to make the trip.
I am looking forward to meeting you at Plow Day. Thanks again.

The owner said that it originally had a Wisconsin engine in it, but when it failed, the PO replaced it with a Kohler.
